Professional Wine Reviews for Alheit Vineyards Chenin Blanc Fire By Night 2017

Rated 95 by Decanter
Crystalline purity from a wine laced with spiced pears, dried camomile flowers and lime. Zingy acidity and smoky minerality provides a framework for the long finish. Vines planted 1974-1980.
Rated 93 by Vinous Media
The 2017 Fire By Night (a biblical phrase referring to the Israelites) comes from pure bush vine Chenin Blanc, from two parcels planted in 1974 and 1980. It is fermented and matured in used neutral barrels. The complex, lucid, attractive bouquet features white peach, clementine, rooibos and hints of chamomile. The pure, nicely focused palate is very well balanced, and hints of orange peel, ginger and chai appear toward the persistent finish. Superb.

Winery Alheit Vineyards

Region: Coastal Region

Coastal South Africa has long been recognized as a vitally important global wine region, and was probably the first 'New World' country to produce wines of an exceptionally high quality. Indeed, in the late 18th century, wines from in and around Cape Town were regarded as amongst the best wines on earth, and were adored for their exoticism and big, fruity flavors Today, the South African wine industry is booming, and wineries are appearing each year along the sun drenched and windy oceanic coastline. Many grape varietals are now grown in the region, however, Chenin Blanc remains the country's flagship varietal, with over eighteen percent of vineyards in the country used for this particular grape, closely followed by Cabernet Sauvignon and Colombard.

Country: South Africa

Perhaps the most famous and well respected of all the wine regions in South Africa is that of Constantia, which holds many of the oldest and most traditional wineries in the country. Here, the temperate climate receives the Atlantic winds which cool the vineyards, and the fertile soil allows the grapes to grow to full ripeness, resulting in highly flavorful wines which are enjoyed around the world. Whilst Sauvignon Blanc varietals make up the most widely exported wines of this region, the rest of the country produces a huge and impressive range of wines, made up from varietals native to many different European countries. From excellent Champagne style sparkling wines, to aromatic fortified examples, fruity reds and refreshing whites, South Africa continues to impress and surprise, with modern techniques and technologies leading the way and producing exceptional results.
